Big surf means big drowning. Tragically an untimely death took place near Trail 6 during the killer swell. Why non-locals attempt attempt surfing 40+ high combers is unfathomable. Most Club members can't swim a strok.

People over 40 should not surf. They look foolish.

Anon', words well spoken. Why in heck would anyody even attempt to imitate such a silly endeavour as surfing anyway. Wht happened at Trail 6 was merely a warning.
